How big should Action Bar(Toolbar) icons be in the new Android Material design?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I tried searching the design guidelines, but I couldn’t find anything related to this. I am trying to figure out the optimal size for Action bar icons in the new L release. Here is an example of what I am trying to achieve:


I tried the previous 48dp size, but it looks a lot bigger than the ones in that picture.

How to solve:

From Material Design Keylines Touch Target Size, size for icons is 24dp


Full icon size should be 24dp with a “live” area of 20dp.
